Toyota New Zealand is proud to announce the company has achieved its highest sales month in the marque’s history with 5,403 vehicles sold across Toyota and Lexus.
June marks the best month of new vehicles sales ever for Toyota New Zealand, with 5,257 new Toyota vehicles sold, with an electrification mix of over 44% per cent and CO2 emissions for their new vehicle portfolio continuing to move down towards their end of year target.
Toyota New Zealand Vice President of New Vehicles, Steve Prangnell, thanks all Toyota customers for their continued loyalty despite the ongoing disruption to new vehicle deliveries.
“Thank you, thank you, thank you to our customers for their passion for the Toyota brand and our great products. Toyota NZ is incredibly humbled by our customers’ loyalty and love of our cars.”
Steve went on to say “I am also very proud to report that our customer demand continues to swing towards electrified product with 44 per cent of our sales in June hybrid electric vehicles.
“Toyota Hybrid is seen as the powertrain of choice for New Zealanders who want to protect and preserve our environment now and for future generations, yet still enjoy Kiwi’s natural inclinations to enjoy travelling and the great kiwi lifestyle.”
Toyota New Zealand Chief Executive Officer, Neeraj Lala says the phenomenal result comes down to the hard work of the Toyota team across the country.
“I want to thank our team across the country who have put in a lot of hard work to be able to achieve this result. A huge thank you to the team from the Toyota Stores to our head office staff, and our Toyota Financial Services team.”
It was an all-time high with multiple milestones reached for Toyota’s range in June:
- The biggest single monthly sales volume ever for the Toyota marque.
- A record retail sales volume through the Toyota network of 60 Stores of which 2383 or 44% were Hybrid electric.
- RAV4 reaches its highest sales ever with 1,496 vehicles sold, of which over 65% were electrified.
- An all time record Hilux sales of 1,639 in the month of June, largely thanks to an incredibly successful Fieldays for Toyota NZ.
“We are proud to continue our reduction in our CO2 profile and still achieve a record month for selling Hilux, which is a testament to our balanced product portfolio while still providing customers with high quality, reliable, affordable, and safe vehicles,” says Steve.
“We are 100% focused on ensuring that our customers’ needs are met through our product, so June’s result was a fantastic culmination of this effort.”
Toyota New Zealand has committed to reducing tailpipe emissions from its portfolio by 46% by 2030 and is on track to reach this target.
